Last night we where given a High Sheriff's award recognising our activities, projects and the initiatives of SSYI. Alongside a grant of £1000 from the Cambridge Community Foundation who manage the High Sheriff's award.
The ceremony was held at the William Gates Building, part of the Computer Science department of the University of Cambridge. The awards where announced by Carol Vorderman and presented by the High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire Dr Andrew Charles Harter CBE and his wife Lily.
We took two of our young people along to accept the award with us, alongside John our Treasurer, Charles our Fundraiser who applied to the Community Foundation for the Grant and two of our Youth Workers, Tina Mogg and Zac Britton.
SSYI would like to thank the High Sheriff and the Cambridge Community Foundation for giving us this award and the grant to support the work of SSYI, particularly the Shred It Up project.
